Sim Restart Party at Ground Zero

We're going to be building more and better RP for you folks, should you dare to try it out. We're redoing things a bit, and kicking the whole thing off with a Sim Restart Party on Saturday, September 25 from 12pm - 2pm slt at Miskatonic University.

What does this mean, exactly?

Things will be blown up! There will be chaos! We will find monsters! And through it all, I'll be spinning some excellent tunes for you to dance to including some very awesome New Wave, a slew of Goth, a smidgen of EBM, a dash of Industrial, a peck of Dance, and a small jar of Punk for your discerning ears.

But that isn't all. I have a song collection big enough to drown a pod of whales in, and it's yours for the requesting. Want something esoteric? Heck, why not? Want a favorite? No problem.

Here's a sampling of the goods: The Leather Nun, Danielle Dax, Sisters of Mercy, Danse Society, The Jags, David Bowie, Iggy Pop, Depeche Mode, New Order, Joy Division, L'ame Immortelle, Ashbury Heights, Cruxshadows, VNV Nation, Dr. Steel, and oh, so much more.

Do not be afraid. Be very, very frightened.
And watch stuff get blown up, because it's FUN!

Under the sea...

Kingsport shoreline, originally uploaded by Ceres Eilde.

Both Kingsport and Dunwich have multiple shoreline plots available-- and there's no limit to how far down you can go! These lots are perfect for Deep Ones or merfolk. Renting in Miskatonic Valley has its privileges; you receive full terraforming and other parcel rights for the price of rental only. Come check out the scenery, pay the box, and you'll be contacted within 24 hours to transfer land ownership.

Dreadful. Simply dreadful.

I've neglected this blog shamefully, haven't I?

Don't think for a moment that Miskatonic Valley isn't alive and well. Our residents list is growing slowly but steadily-- and the people who live in the Valley are some of the neatest people in SL. We're having a great time with you, Miskatonians! And you reading this, if you're a neat person, we'd love for you to come join us. :)

We have two major announcements:

1. October 22-25 is Darke Carnival time! We will have rides, games, and shows, including a Monster Cabaret and a Most Beautiful Virgin contest!* This is the biggest event of our year, so we hope to see a lot of you there.

2. Prim Perfect Magazine's October issue will feature Miskatonic Valley as its Sim(s) of the Month. Some of the best writers and photographers in SL have come together to investigate Arkham's deepest secrets! We've had a great time hosting them, and we look forward to welcoming Prim Perfect's readers to our community.

As an aside, we still have quite a few shopfronts, homes, and warehouses available for rental. If you're looking for a place to expand your store, now is a good time to rent, before the anticipated increase in traffic. And if you're looking for a home, rent now before they're all gone! Rent is on a per prim basis, at L$3.5 per prim per week. Though the number of prims is set in the current rent boxes, they can be adjusted to a custom allowance. IM Menry Miggins inworld or email to discuss.

October is a busy month, but it's all very exciting! We hope to see you around the Valley soon!

*Actual virginity not required.

Well, this is frustrating. Blogger insists on cutting off the right side of the invitation graphic, so my nifty picture won't show up correctly! To view the actual invite, go here. For those who don't feel like clicking through, here's the text:


May Eve was Walpurgis Night, when Hell's blackest evil roamed the earth and all the slaves of Satan gathered for nameless rites and deeds. It was always a very bad time in Arkham, even though the fine folks up in Miskatonic Avenue and High and Saltonstall Streets pretended to know nothing about it.

Join Arkham's inhabitants for a celebration of the darkness before springtime.
